DOXOIIUE of United Press American occupation of tliu previously Jiip-liuld island of Funafuti probably will not result in anything sensational immediately. Tltis island with (he musical name that -sounds like chewinj; jrum is little more tliiin a lioai) of coral in the limitless mid-Pacific. Nevertheless, its proximity to the many islands on the eastern and southern rim of Japan's va.4 and newlv-con- <iuered oceanic domain gives the Allies a good strategical base. Occupation of Funntiili puts in- * to our hnnds a base of operations no more than 760 miles from Japanese held Nauru, only 44Q miles from the southernmost Gilbert, Islands, and C20 miles from the Marshalls. All those points arc within easy bomber range from an American .aviation base on Funafuti Island. Funafuti itself is the largest of the Ellice group, consisting of Many low coral islands and Altois hi nine clusters, covering some 400 )nilcs from northwest to southeast. Its total area is no more than 14 square miles and only about 3000 people live there—virtually till of I (hern, incidentally, Christians ; They arc reputed to be descendants of pioneer Sninoans of 13 or 14 generations ago who put off in their''.outriggers In search of new land to' the west. ' • Once Britain-Owned Great Britain annexed the Ellice Islands in 1802, recognizing in them a potentially valuable base in case of trouble in the Pacific to .protect the Empire's far-flung Arkansas Briefs LITTLE KOCK, April 24.

UTTLK KOCK, April 24. (l/I'l— Today marks Ihc licgin- niup of nniiiiiial Dovs anil Girls' Week in Arkansas. It was proclaimed by Governor Adkins, Lilonr; with several other special "im-ks." IJTTLK ItOC'U', Ajiril 24. (UP) — Sliitc Comptrollt-r J. Bryan Sims lias liecn overruled in a salary fi B hl with Jack Slacken, rliicr clerk of the House of Representatives. Atlorncy General (iuy E. Williams hflit Mint Slacken was entitled to S2COO, instead of the holdings. Since 1915, Funafuti has Kiamen 10 jzuuu, nisi been part of the Gilbert and Ellice $1250 fixed by Sims. Isles colony. I The Japs took Funafuti and the other Ellice Islands in their first inadjSWeep across the Pacific early last year. Apparently, however, the Japs decided 'later that they had bitten - off more than they could chew and evaculatcd their forces from Funafuti, at least. For tho .-w.^^RRv.ssiyM^s^fifins?^ 1 ?," when :we went' m there- --•;••• -': More important than as a bnse for potential offensive operations, Funafuti provides us with another unsinkable aircraft carrier on the .supply line from the United Slates to Australia. It lies almost directly athwart and midway on n line from Honolulu lo Melbourne. It provides the needed barrier between the Fijis and the Jap-held Gilberts and serves ns the northern wall of a funnel through which our supplies can be rim into Australia. Funafuti is to the Fijis what Guadalcanal and Tillage 'are lo the New Hebrides farther west. Thus, we now have n semi-circle of defenses around the outer perimeter of (lie Jap island empire extending from Hawaii to south eastern New Guinea. No Home For Subs Funafuti is not suited as a submarine base because of its .small size and lack, of any kind of harbor. Significantly, Funafuti is only the second piece of territory wo have taken back • from the Japs since the war began; the first, of course, being Guadalcanal. It is hardly likely that recapture of Funafuti indicates the beginning of nn island-hopping campaign toward the major Japanese bases on tile rim of Nippon's. sphere of conquest. General MacArtlnir lias said that Allied strategy docs not envisage an island-hopping campaign btck to Japan. He says we intend to win bases from which we can press air, land and sea attacks against Japan itself. From Australia, there arc two routes to Japan proper. One i.$ the nortluvest passage — through the Dutch East Indies and the Philippines from hopping off points in Australia and New Guinea. The other is the northeast passage which would involve the rcconqucst of the Gilbert and Caroline Islands, the Marshall group, and eventually Guttm— which is only 1500 miles "'• from Tokj-o. Aim At Japan Proper Either way would demand an exhaustive. bloody campaign of |>cr- haps a year's duration. It is doubtful that our military leaders have any such thing in mind. Their ob- jc-ctlvc is to contain as much of the Jap sc.i and air forces as possible in llic Southwest Pacific until such time as Japan can bo hit at home— and hit hard Thus, the occupation of Funafuti can be viewed as an "offensive- defensive" measure to guard our present holdings in the South Pacific arcn nnd to strengthen our supply lines to Australia. As an air base, it can harry the bigger Jap bases to the north and northwest and force n further dispersal of Japan's air forces. Its occupation Indicates that the Allies are working out some kind of over- alt strategic plan of which occttpa- Uon of Funafuti is only a part. There have been hints of late, that despite the professed alarm over Japan's growing strength In Ihc Southwest Pacific, Nippon is due for a rude and Jolting surprise— perhaps In the near future.
